and Littleton Area Car Repair
Dale and Toby are TDC Car Care
been in the automotive repair industry since 1971. He knew
at an early age that he wanted to work with
trucks and anything mechanical. His knack and ability to
understand and work with mechanical and electrical systems
makes him a natural when it comes to dealing with today’s
the early years, Dale worked on bicycles and go-carts cars
for friends and the kids in the neighborhood. He took over
his parent’s garage at age twelve and turned it into
"his own shop”, the rest is history. There was
never anything else he wanted to do. He would seek out training
and technical information anywhere and
could. When there was not any information or training available,
he would go and talk with the local mechanics at the corner
garage, tapping into there experience and knowledge.
In high school Dale had taken all the automotive classes
his school offered by his junior year. Not to be deterred,
Dale sat down with his auto shop instructor and they put
together a shop management course so Dale could hone his
management and leadership skills. Therefore it was a natural
path for Dale to follow when, in 1980, he opened a twelve
bay shop in Prescott Arizona. Recognized for his abilities
and commitment to the auto repair industry, in 1989, he was
called on by fellow shop owners to be the president of the
local chapter of the Automotive Service Association. He filled
that position until 1994 when he was elected as State Director
of the Arizona Automotive Service Association.
As a tribute to the Dave Misesner, Dale’s high school
auto shop instructor, Dale took time from the duties of A.S.A
state director and from running his shop to go into teaching.
He taught at the local community college in the auto technologies
department. His teaching degree was achieved through years
of experience and hours of on the job training as well as
attending countless technical seminars and classes. With
his natural ability to fix things, and his knack for making
complicated mechanical things seem simple and logical, Dale
was right at home in the class room.
to work for Dale in 1992; His automotive background was very
impressive for someone his age. Toby had experience in the
automotive industry repairing and servicing cars, and managing
one of Prescott Arizona’s leading body shops. Toby’s
desire to become a lead repair and service technician and his
perfectionist attitude made him the perfect partner to team
up with Dale.
Toby, like Dale, has had a passion for cars and trucks all his
life. He was one of the co-founders of the Prescott Auto Enthusiasts
Car club and spent his time away from work building race cars,
performance vehicles and custom cars. All the time wanting to
make cars run and look better than they were originally made.
Toby’s drive for perfection is evident in everything he
does, from his welding and fabrication skills, to his understanding
of automotive computer systems. His constant thirst for knowledge
about today’s cars, trucks and SUV’s keeps him on
the cutting edge of today’s automotive technology.
Through the years, Toby has attended training classes and seminars.
He is constantly updating his training and credentials to the
point where he has gone from apprentice
and student to Master Technician. With his ability and knowledge, he is able
to handle all of today’s vehicle’s service and repair needs. Toby
also has an in depth knowledge of automotive computer control systems, he can
sort through all the data from today vehicles and make the proper decision
to fix your vehicle properly the first time.
Dale and Toby would
like the opportunity to earn your business and be your car
care provider. Not by selling you on this week’s
special or by hiring a big name celebrity to represent them,
but by doing what they do best…servicing your car and
repairing it right.
